Master of Science in Urban Ecological Planning
About the program
Urban Ecological Planning (UEP) is a practice-based program that enables students to develop skills and knowledge to address complex urban issues in rapidly changing social, cultural, political and environmental contexts. The program stresses on an integrated approach to strategic spatial change, with a specific focus on participatory, inclusive and developmental planning practice.
The program provides a strong link to practice and seeks to challenge urban practitioners from all backgrounds, with an underpinning ethos that the best approaches begin with people themselves.
The next round of admission will open in autumn 2016, with the following application deadlines: Non-EU/non-EEA students: 1 December 2016, EU / EEA / Norwegian students: 1 March 2017
Past students are currently successfully placed in various profiles across the globe. Many go on to become development professionals both in NGOs and government service, while others pursue careers in academia and the private sector.
The program runs for two years. It consists of four semesters and two fieldworks during the studies.
